Default My neighbor's drone ran into my car and scratched it.

AZ
My neighbor's drone ran into my car and scratched it.
I asked him to pay for it but he says he does not see any real scratch.
He also said the steering/controller was not working 100%? That's not my fault.

There CLEARLY is a scratch but what can I do now?
I hate to sue him over this but it is just not right what he did.

If you don't want to sue him, then you eat the damage and move on.

Your neighbor's act amounts to trespass and negligence. A person commits trespass to land when he wrongfully and intentionally enters, or causes a thing or third person to enter, land owned or occupied by another. Negligence is the failure to exercise appropriate care expected to be exercised among specified circumstances. Tortious liability arises from the breach of a duty and its breach is redressible by an action for unliquidated damages.

Just file in small claims.
It's easy to do, and present your damage report and estimate for repair, you will win.

Some judges want the person that repaired the damage report to be there as a witness BTW.
That is what the judge said in a recent case I was involved in.

That's true, although many times the rules of evidence in small claims is much more relaxed than regular civil court.
